Tilda in Japan


Hi everyone, hope your weekend was good. A Tilda card today and her round the world tour has brought her to beautiful Japan :D! She looks very elegant with her up do hair and I've coloured her with distress inks then cut her out. Added some pearl pen in lilac and gold to her kimono. The Screen card base is die cut on the Cricut and I've lined the trellis area with BasicGrey Sugar Rush paper. The punched dragonflies are cut from that too. Added some Wild Orchid cherry blossoms, punched leaves, some faux stitching and more pearl and glitter pen and some little oriental charms to finish off.

I've managed quite a few challenges with this card and they are:

Alphabet challenge - P is for punches
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - What are little girls made of
Corrisive Challenge - Faux techniques
If the shoe fits - Use your Cricut/nesties etc., etc.
A pocket full of posies - All that glitters
Wild Orchid Crafts - One for the girls
and last but very much not least Totally Tilda Challenge - Stitching - real or faux

Thanks for visiting and for your lovely comments as always.

So sorry I haven't been able to keep up with the commenting lately my friend, but I have been checking in on your awesome cards and oogling over every one of them. You are so clever and think outside the box to come up with something special..... I love this idea for the fretwork and the cherry blossoms, just perfect to bring out the best in the lovely Japanese Tilda..... and she looks stunning the way you've coloured her!
Hope you had a good holiday and I'll be in touch soon ;o)
Big hugs, T xxx
